Dean's Message

Welcome to the Lienhard School of Nursing!

Thank you for your interest in the Pace University Lienhard School of Nursing (LSN). We are nearly 50 years old, and have many distinguished programs, faculty, and services that will give you a great start to beginning and advanced nursing practice. This Web site provides an opportunity to learn about our commitment to academic and practice excellence and scholarship, our programs and classes, faculty, clinical settings and, of course, admission policies and procedures. The Lienhard School of Nursing dedicates itself to the long standing commitment of Pace University to Opportunitas.
The need for well-educated, highly skilled nurses has never been greater. The profession of nursing needs people who are dedicated to providing health care to people from diverse backgrounds, at all ages and stages of life, and to a second area of need, preparation of nursing faculty. Based on our long and rich history of educating nurses, you can be confident that the Lienhard School of Nursing will prepare you for positions of responsibility in all areas of health care and nursing education.

Set within urban and suburban settings, the Lienhard School of Nursing partners with many well- known primary, acute, and tertiary care facilities and community agencies to foster human growth and dignity, and provide primary health care. We are committed to helping individuals, families, and communities at local, national, and international levels that strive to meet health care demands now and in the future. Our vision is to be a leader in innovation and excellence in education, research, and practice in primary health care.
The Lienhard School of Nursing is a member of the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN), the national voice for baccalaureate and graduate nursing education.
Please take this time to browse our Web site to get to know us! You will find an overview of our undergraduate and graduate programs, excellent faculty, nursing organizations, and unlimited opportunities to learn the art and science of nursing. Our home page is designed to be highly interactive. We have also provided the information you need to understand the many features of our school and to apply to Pace University.
